Investigation of Silver Doped Hydroxyapatite

By Arita Dubņika, Dagnija Loča and Lāsma Mālniece

Abstract

Biomaterials based on calcium phosphate ceramics are used as implants in human/animal body due to their excellent biocompatibility. Silver containing materials have a very broad spectrum of antibacterial activity; therefore silver doped hydroxyapatite can be used in medicine as antibacterial implant material. The aim of this work was to synthesize monophasic and biphasic silver doped hydroxyapatite and evaluate the differences in their physical and antibacterial properties
